San Luis Obispo Open Studios Art Tour

Open Studio the next two weekends featuring my succulent creations, mosaics and jewelry.

Succulent Wedding

I just finished two succulent bridesmaid's bouquets for a wedding this weekend.  I made a little booboo, so I glued on a heart charm to cover it.  

Mosaic Handbag Workshop

This fun and versatile mosaic handbag can hold beautiful flowers or organize your make-up or your art supplies.  Check out the class schedule to make your own and you select the plates to totally customize your creation.  It's the perfect holiday gift...  If you can't make it to a workshop, we can custom make one just for you.

Alcohol Inks Necklaces

Alcohol Inks are so much fun and sooo easy!  Come take a class on California's beautiful Central Coast.

Animal Print & Red Rose Mosaic Heart

My latest creation that will be available at the San Luis Obispo Open Studios Art Tour Oct 10-11 & 17-18.  I handmade the roses with clay and fired them.  I shaped each petal using the old Aleene's Bread Dough Roses technique where you start with a small ball of dough / clay.  

Sea Glass Jewelry, Mosaics, Succulents, oh my!

love, love, love sea glass and I've been creating up a storm getting ready for the San Luis Obispo Open Studios Art Tour Oct 10-11 & 17-18.  We'll have mosaics, jewelry of all sorts and SUCCULENTS!  PM me and I'll send you the studio address.

Just wanted to thank you again for making the succulent wreath class fun and relaxing.  I am so excited to see how my wreath grows and blooms.  You are an amazing artist and I appreciate your patience and how you shared some of your precious succulents from your own wreath!
